The 7th annual Glasgow Allotment Forum Potato Day will be held on Sunday 18 February 2018 from 11am to 3pm at The Reidvale Neighbourhood Centre, 13 Whitevale Street, Dennistoun, G31 1QW.

All are welcome, so please spread the word to friends, family, schools, work-mates and fellow gardeners. There will be over 50 varieties of seed potato, the majority of which are Scottish grown. You will find old favourites as well as new additions and, again, can buy from as little as one tuber to larger amounts, although the day is more about variety than quantity. There will be onion sets, shallot sets and garlic as well as fertiliser and potato planter bags and Kings Seeds. New this year will be broad beans and peas ‘by the scoop’.

The newly built Broomhill Primary School will have a public open day on from midday to 730pm on Wednesday 17 January 2018.

The open day is a chance for parents, carers and local residents to have a look inside the new school.

With regards travel to school, which was an issue raised at our School Run Summit, in a recent letter the Parent Council stated, “While we understand that some pupils may require to be driven to school, Broomhill Parent Council, Broomhill Community Council and the Broomhill Primary School Management Team are keen to encourage as many pupils to travel actively to school as often as possible. This could be on foot, on a scooter or skates, by bike, or by ‘park and stride’ where the pupils are driven for part of the journey but walk the last section to school.”

The new school will open to pupils on Wednesday 24 January.

Glasgow City Council is once again inviting people to take part in budget conversations to discuss the financial challenge facing the city.  They want to continue that discussion with you and have launched an online consultation and they will be holding three events for invited representatives of community groups.

The Council is expected to have to save around £33 million during the next financial year following the settlement figures from the Scottish Government. They are already working on ways to close that spending gap and the conversations in previous budgets have been important in identifying areas where the Council can do things differently, what services people value and what role the community can play.
